so it's been freakishly cold the last few days
and every time I sit down
to a cup of hot steaming tea
it is cold in no time
I thought my mug needs a
little something to keep it warm
felt jacket/cozy/you give it a name!!
It was fun to make and I am sure if you were
to give it as a gift to someone with a sense of humour
they will appreciate it!!!
this is my Christmas mug
I pull it out of storage on the 1st of December
and put it away on the 7th of January
I used 2 pieces of felt
1 red piece for the body
1 white piece for the snowflake
(yes I am obsessed with snow flakes....)
I blanket stitched around the felt
The positioned the felt snowflake
and attached it with a bling brad
Then i got started on the strap
made an embarrasing button hole!!!
then buttoned it on my model......
and now she is ready to go.....
For you coffee drinkers out there.....
if you own one of these Starbucks coffee cups
here is what you can do.....
I just knitted a strip with variegated wool
sewed the ends together
and attached wooden buttons...
hot coffee for longer.....
(not clinically proven.....so do not sue me)
I think they are fun gifts!!
